Finance Study Tour to NYC
Thanks to BancFirst endowed lectureship, Department of Business takes an educational trip to New York City every year. BancFirst endowed lectureship pays for travel and boarding. The trip goes to the financial district, New York Stock Exchange and Bloomberg building.
In order to be eligible for the trip, the student must be Business or Accounting Undergraduate or MBA student. In addition, the student should have already taken or be currently enrolled in Investment, Bond Analysis or Stock Analysis class. We started these trips in 2012. We take this trip during the spring semester. In our most recent trip, we attended an asset management conference. The conference is also attended by potential employers and educators in the finance industry.
Due to limited resources we can only take selected students on this trip. The students will be selected based on their GPA, essay scores and interview. Dr. Qayyum (firstname.lastname@example.org) supervises and arranges these trips.
